This occurs in Term 3 every Wednesday. We have a group of students and adult volunteers participate in Skiing or Snowboarding at Whakapapa, Mt Ruapehu.
There can be up to approximately 50 students and 14 adults attending, depending on the number of volunteers who can offer 4 x 4 transport.
Students get a 1hour & 50 minute lesson as well as a season pass & rental equipment at a heavily discounted locals price.
The volunteer parents drive their cars up the mountain & they each have a small group of children that they look after once the lessons have finished.
Snow squad preparation begins in Term 1 and information is sent out via EDGE
